  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of excess fat
  • 1 cup ranch dressing
  • 3 cups crushed cornflakes
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  • Preheat oven to 400 F degrees.  Lightly grease a 9x13" baking dish or rimmed baking sheet and set aside.
  • In a shallow bowl, add ranch dressing.  In a separate shallow bowl, add cornflakes, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, paprika and salt and pepper.
  • Dip chicken in ranch dressing, shaking off any excess, then dip in cornflake mixture.  I pat the cornflake crumbs into the chicken to make sure they're well coated.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes, until juices run clear and a meat thermometer reads 165 F degrees.
